Celestial Bison Records

Celestial Bison Records was one of the first net labels, existing from 2001 - 2005. It was started by the members of Struggleburger as a way to distribute their music, for free, over the Internet. Celestial Bison eventually branched out to other artists and specialized in experimental, lo-fi, folk, and noise.

Roster: Struggleburger, Dave Joslyn, The Gala Luncheon, Soft Rock Champion, Marc with a C, Lex Without a Beard, Bhren, Josh Brookoff, Steve Garron, Bucket of Nails, and DJHMTAW.

We'll be archiving as many of the original albums here at archive.org as possible. Some we've lost the masters for, so will be mp3 only. Some won't be available at all, per the artist's requests. But we'll do what we can. Thanks for listening.

Here's what's up so far:
